Kitty litter disposal

If you use recycled Kitty Litter you can put this in your green bin for fortnightly collection. This will then be processed in the HotRot In-Vessell System at the Kangaroo Island Resource Recovery Centre on North Coast Road. To read more on this system, go here.

Do not put Kitty Litter into a home composting system, as there would not be enough heat to kill pathogens.

If the Kitty Litter is not made from recycled materials, please dispose in the red lid (landfill) bin.
